Acteon has announced the opening of Acteon Singapore Operations Centre (ASOC) at the Offshore Marine Centre in Singapore’s Tuas industrial area.
The Centre is the first purpose-built Acteon facility and has been designed to accommodate multiple Acteon operating companies and support their offshore operations throughout South East Asia.
The 10,000 m2 port side facility offers Acteon companies both high grade office space and engineering capability in South East Asia. The ASOC provides Acteon operating companies with easy and unrestricted port mobilisation and demobilisation options for heavy equipment, which will be supported by a 128 te workshop crane capacity. Acteon’s South East Asia customer base will now benefit from quicker response times on equipment supply and rapid turnaround rates.
Several Acteon companies, including Team Energy Resources, Menck, Claxton, Aquatic and LM Handling will utilise the ASOC for the following activities:
– Project Design and Engineering
– Equipment maintenance and servicing
– Equipment availability for rental and sales
Progressively, additional operating companies will be able to utilise the facility, as Acteon Group’s position in South East Asia strengthens.
“There was a strong demand for Acteon companies having a dedicated facility from which to utilise and service the South East Asia region,” said Acteon Group Ltd executive vice president Paul Alcock. “We are very committed to continuing our growth in South East Asia, and by investing heavily in establishing a dedicated local presence in Singapore, we have both secured easy and unrestricted port mobilisation and demobilisation options for heavy equipment in Tuas, while vastly improving our access to customers in the region. They, in turn, will benefit from our enhanced and expedited service capabilities. This new centre we hope will add significant value to our capabilities throughout South East Asia, and will add positively to the relationships we establish and develop in the region.”
“We are delighted that Acteon has chosen to establish its regional service centre at the Offshore Marine Centre to serve its customers in Asia better. The Offshore Marine Centre, with its common waterfront area, is a strong testament to the collaboration between the government and industry to develop innovative solutions that optimise the use of resources,” said Lim Kok Kiang, executive director, transport engineering, Singapore Economic Development Board.
